LBS
We usually know where we are. But that may not always be the case, spatial information up our head may not be translated properly when we are telling ourselves or others directions of places unvisited before, solely based on addresses. Maps are the first thing that comes into our head when we think of going on to a long drive, or exploring the unknown. But still we have to rely on pinpointing the source and destination and drawing the route ON the map, which adds a “little” overhead for us. How about letting it all be done by a computer? Knowing where we are, or where we are going- all are position oriented, making a computer do the daunting tasks of route selection, situation analysis, location point-out are part of location based services. A location based service is a service where the positional and spatial information is processed to serve the parties involved. It can be accessible through mobile, computer network, or any device that utilizes the location based technologies. It is an information and entertainment service that has numerous application starting from simple position detector to advanced weather forecasting.

LBS Applications
Some examples of location-based services are:
• Requesting the nearest business or service, such as an ATM or restaurant
• Turn by turn navigation to any address
• Locating people on a map displayed on the mobile phone
• Receiving alerts, such as notification of a sale on gas or warning of a traffic jam
• Location-based mobile advertising
• Asset recovery with GPS to find, for example, stolen assets in containers

For the carrier, location-based services provide added value by enabling services such as:
• Resource tracking with dynamic distribution. Taxis, service people, rental equipment, doctors, fleet scheduling.
• Resource tracking. Objects without privacy controls, using passive sensors or RF tags, such as packages and train boxcars.
• Finding someone or something. Person by skill (doctor), business directory, navigation, weather, traffic, room schedules, stolen phone, emergency calls.
• Proximity-based notification (push or pull). Targeted advertising, buddy list, common profile matching (dating), automatic airport check-in.
• Proximity-based actuation (push or pull). Payment based upon proximity (EZ pass, toll watch).
